Swami Rama - 09 The Swami and telepathy

Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

This is very sophisticated telepathy. First one probes the mind of the willing subject to find subjects of concern and relevance.  Then one constructs questions about them and produces an answer.  When the person actually appears, one then projects the questions back to the person – puts thoughts into their head.

A description of the experience

Beyond Biofeedback – Drs Elmer and Alyce Green

Concerning ESP-type events, we had a number of personal illustrations with the Swami, but nothing that took place in the laboratory while he was wired up. On one occasion when Alyce, the Swami, and I were eating lunch at home, Pat Norris telephoned. She asked the Swami if she could talk to him for a few minutes at 1:30 P.M. He said yes.

Turning from the phone, he asked me to find a paper and pencil for him. Then he sat on a couch in the corner of the living room and began thinking and writing while Alyce and I cleared away the dishes. I kept wondering what he was doing. Glancing his way, I noticed that he had put the piece of paper face down on a chair. Just as we were leaving to return to the office, Pat arrived.

Later that day I asked Pat what kind of conversation she had with the Swami, and she said that an odd thing had occurred. The instant she came into the house he said, "Ask me a question."

 She said, "What do you mean, ask you a question?" And he said, "Just ask me a question, something important."

At first she could not think of anything, but finally she asked, "Should Peter [her son] go to a private school?"

Then he said, "Ask me another question."

And she said, "Should I return to college to get a Ph.D.?"

And he said, "Ask another question."

Pat said that he kept asking for questions until she had asked seven questions. When she was through with the last one he grabbed the paper and handed it to her. Most of her questions (and some suggestions) were written there.

One was wrong and one was only partly related to the subject, but the others were correct. She said this was a real surprise.
